“Wood Shop by Margaret Larson should be required reading for all elementary-age children. From the gorgeous photos and illustrations to the detailed project plans and tool introductions, Wood Shop presents woodworking and making in a fun and informative way. These projects encourage building and bonding, which strengthen relationships and form self-reliance. Larson understands that children are extremely capable, and Wood Shop is the ideal book to introduce skills that will last a lifetime.” — Timothy Dahl, cofounder of Built by Kids
Introducing Wood Shop, the new woodworking book for kids ages 6 -12 by Workbench owner Margaret Larson.
Young makers will learn how to safely use each tool before embarking on projects like Imagination Station, Twinkle Twinkle, and the One Board Birdhouse. Some projects even have variations for beginning and more experienced woodworkers.
Easy-to-follow directions and lots of pictures help kids develop confidence in their skills and ability to invent their own wood projects.
